Next Gen

We are the Next Generation

There is always a next generation. The kids who grew up in the Squam community, spensummers on Squam, and hold Squam near and dear to their hearts eventually grow up and some have families of their own! New families move into old lake houses and new lake houses are occasionally built. We want to engage the next generation, whoever that may be, in an effort to continue the stewardship of the Squam watershed for generations to come.

NextGen Committee

The NextGen Committee was created to foster relationships between younger members’ families within the Squam community, resulting in deeper social bonds and more active participation in the stewardship of Squam’s land and character. Our group sponsors the monthly SLCS e-newsletters, plans community events and gatherings, and spends time together brainstorming strategies to continue to engage the next generation!

Committee Members: Corinna Beale (chair), Kat Armstrong, Mike Evans, Polly Grube, Emily Landry, and Amy Nordblom

The NextGen Committee meets once monthly on Wednesday evenings. Want to join us or learn more? Send us an email at

Events & Gatherings

Join Next Gen members and SLCS on Saturday October 9 to hike Whitten Woods and then enjoy coffee and a snack on the porch at the Holderness Library. If you don’t feel up to the hike, you can still join us for coffee at the library at 11:30. Hope to see you there!

We are eager to welcome new ideas and expand our efforts and our community! If you have suggestions, please reach out to us at
